7-day men-only retreat at

VIKASA YOGA RESORT

“Life Loves You 2019”

Join us for 7 magical days and nights December 28th 2018 – January 4th 2019 to practice yoga in one of the most captivating places in the world. This men's yoga retreat is a journey of discovery for the Conscious Man - incorporating strength, balance and flexibility - stimulating the mind and restoring the body.

Yoga4men is a style focusing specifically on the male body and targeting common areas of tension - shoulders, hips and hamstrings. It's a balance of playful discovery, mindfulness, challenging physical practice and inspiring philosophy. Our focus is on finding the correct physical alignment in asanas that allows energy to flow more freely and ultimately promotes creativity and freedom, both on and off the mat.

Every day will be a garland of practices, including 2 Asana classes, pranayama and meditation to re-ignite the passions in your life. RAD KAIM will offer sessions of combined asana and transpersonal work with the opportunity for men to gather in the company of other men in spiritual practice.

 

LIFE LOVES YOU!

“The most important decision we make is whether we believe we live in a friendly or hostile universe.”

— Albert Einstein

 

The yoga4men community embraces heart-centered yogis from around the world. Our tribe is growing year after year, welcoming those who are ready to shine their light in the world. Join us on the Yogic Path as we explore one of the most influential and remarkable spiritual traditions - Tantra. The purpose of this retreat is to explore a set of very profound practices that probe beyond the surface of reality to uncover the awareness of the bliss in every aspect of life. Tantric practices work on the subtle energies within the body to enhance spiritual growth and physical wellbeing. Through the exploration of these energies and their connection to the universe, the purpose of life and the connection to others can be understood in a new dimension. Drawing from "The sutras of Recognition", a foundational text of the Tantric Shaivism of Kashmir, we will uncover a deeper way of looking at life, one that uncovers profound joy and a sense of wonder. The power of this retreat can melt the heart, clear the mind and embrace a new way of seeing one’s life with fresh perspective. Get ready for the time of your life! Ultimately, we will discover the value of Tantric practice in that it reveals the divine right in the midst of the ordinary, charging our lives with meaning.
